The Women4Women cross-border healthcare system is being implemented to improve maternal and child healthcare in these for the large numbers of Palestinian women and children from remote West Bank communities at risk due to limited access to healthcare. Access to healthcare is crucial for the wellbeing of both mothers and children, and it's important that efforts are made to address the healthcare disparities that exist in these communities.

In 2022, we launched Women4Women (W4W) together with Sheba Beyond and the Green Land Society for Health Development in Hebron. The training and deployment of a multidisciplinary team of young women healthcare professionals to deliver primary and reproductive healthcare services to remote communities in the West Bank is a significant step towards improving maternal and child healthcare in these underserved areas.

The use of Israeli remote care technologies to bridge between the Sheba and W4W teams for regular training and clinical supervision is an innovative approach that leverages technology to improve healthcare access and quality. By removing financial, geographical, cultural, and political barriers to timely healthcare, this project empowers vulnerable women in the West Bank and contributes to the overall goal of improving healthcare access and equity for all individuals.

By providing these essential healthcare services, the team is not only improving the physical health of these women and children but also helping to address some of the cultural and social barriers to healthcare that exist in these communities. 

Empowering local women healthcare professionals is crucial for sustainable and culturally sensitive healthcare delivery. Addressing the unique challenges faced by these communities, the Women4Women project is not only improving access to healthcare but also helping to promote gender equality and women's empowerment. 

It's inspiring to see how cross-border cooperation and innovative technologies are being used to overcome barriers and make a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of vulnerable populations - poverty-stricken and severely underserved, highlighting the urgent need to improve healthcare access in these areas.
